Project Term: 24 months; Ended 2018
Grant Amount: $99,453
The grant allowed the tribe to establish the Northern Cheyenne Injury Prevention Program. The grantee formed a strong coalition and provided multiple car seat safety clinics, safety checks, seat belt law awareness, and data sharing. In a major success, the coalition provided data and advocacy that ultimately supported a decision by the Tribal Council to rescind the Secondary Seat Belt Ordinance and implement a Primary Seatbelt Ordinance in September 2018. The tribe is assessing options to fund ongoing injury prevention activities, including seeking federal injury prevention funding and possibly including this program in T-HIP Tier 2.
